Whether you already have a television or are buying a new one, you want to ensure your television is the right size for your apartment. If you are purchasing a new television, you will want to measure the size of your apartment to ensure that you select a television that will fit comfortably in your space. A television that is too large for your apartment will look out of place and be distracting. A television that is too small for your apartment will not provide you with the viewing experience that you are looking for.

You’ll also need to pick a cable package. Spectrum TV offers a variety of packages and prices to fit the needs of its customers. Spectrum TV packages and prices include Spectrum Starter, Spectrum Select, and Spectrum Gold. Spectrum Starter includes over 60 channels for $44.99 per month. Spectrum Select includes over 125 channels for $54.99 per month. Spectrum Gold has over 175 channels for $74.99 per month. In addition to these three main packages, several smaller packages include fewer channels and range in price from $24.99 to $64.99 per month.

Mounting Your TV


When setting up a TV in your apartment, you have two basic options: mounting it on the wall or placing it on a stand. If you’re mounting your TV on the wall, you’ll need to purchase a wall mount and ensure that the TV is compatible with that mount. You’ll also need to find a spot on the wall where the TV will be visible and easily accessible. Once you’ve determined the location, mark the area on the wall and use a level to ensure it’s straight. Then, use a drill to make pilot holes in the wall and attach the mount using screws. Next, lift the TV and place it onto the mount.

If you’re placing your TV on a stand, there are several factors to consider. First, you’ll need to determine how much space is available on your stand and whether or not the TV will fit comfortably. You’ll also need to choose a stand that can support the weight of your television. Finally, you’ll need to find an appropriate location for the stand and make sure that there’s enough room behind it for cables and other cords.

Configuring Your TV Settings

Configuring your television settings will ensure you get the best possible picture and sound from your set. The first step is to identify what type of connection your TV has. There are three common types: A/V, HDMI, and components. Once you have identified the type of connection, locate the appropriate cables and follow the on-screen instructions to connect your TV. If you are using an antenna to watch TV, you must scan for channels. Once your TV is connected, it’s time to configure its settings.

Start by pressing the “Menu” button on your remote control and selecting either “Picture,” “Sound,” or both (depending on what you want to adjust). From there, use the arrows on your remote control to navigate the menus and make changes as necessary. For example, if you want to adjust the brightness of your picture, press the arrow up key; if you’re going to change the volume level, press the arrow right key. When you’re making adjustments, press the “Exit” button to save your changes and return to watching TV.
